In January, the first international office for the startup opened in Madrid. Over the period of the next 12 months, it aims to expand to the rest of Europe. Stepping ahead, the platform will continue to enhance the post-purchase experience and extend its fast tag programme. The startup with the fast tag programme is helping eCommerce brands to decrease the marketing costs.
As eCommerce has become an emerging business in the market, different businesses are striving well to enhance their delivery process to enhance the overall shopping experience. With the aim to offer the best shipping, the company ensures efficient and greener fulfillment. The eCommerce brands can choose to add customized inserts into the packaging, customize the packaging, and convey the brand story through shipping notifications.
As Tim Dumain, the BigBlue co-founder said
“Powering independent brands in France since 2018, BigBlue does not simply offer a fulfillment solution that matches Amazon standards. We aim to make it easy for brands to grow online. With this new round, we will support scaling service offerings for our growing base of online merchants, fuel hiring efforts, and continue to position the company as the leader in the D2C fulfillment space.”
